  1. Hi, my name is Gino and I’ll be 33 years old in May of 2004. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my spine a few months back. I was told that it was a minor case but HOLY MOLY!, I hurt like hell all the time. I’m usually ok as long as I’m on my feet but as sooon as I lay down or sit, the pain starts and often affects my sleep. I’m looking into purchasing a magnetic belt for back support. Are they any good for my situation? I’m not over wieght and get plenty of exorcise. Did a lot of power lifting at a younger age and have a lot of major accidents in my life. I figure this is where the arthritis developed from.NEED HELP!
